I got started 4 hours later than planned this morning. I decided to go to the nice shady Greenbelt Trail and do a 7 mile out and back. I felt great the first half but the heat got to me in mile 3 as I ran in a clearing in direct sunlight. I took a gel pack but I was overheated. I took 4 or 5 walk breaks on the way back. I had planned to finish in 63 minutes but once I slowed down I was just aiming for 70min. At 6.75mi in I got a call from Ellen checking on me and it gave the motivation to keep going strong. 
31:42 out and 38:16 back finishing 7 miles in 70:10. The outdoor heat beats an hour on the treadmill any day.
It was 86-88f during my run.
